In 1908 Camillo Olivetti formed the Ing. C. Olivetti Company, and produced his first typewriter, the M1 in 1910. The machine was of original design, with legible characters, a standard keyboard, two-colour ribbon, decimal tabulator, and back spacer. It was exhibited at the World Fair in Turin a year later and the Olivetti Company won an order to supply 100 typewriters to the Italian Navy.
